Great food! We split Tuscany Toasts for an appetizer. I had a lamb chop with roasted potatoes. It was fabulous! The chop had been cooked on a grill and the potatoes had been caramelized with rosemary. My husband had potato encrusted sea bass with green beans. We ordered grilled artichokes as a vegetable since we were expecting very small portions... More

The food is delicious, a great restaurant where you can find all the typical tuscan food, revised also in an innovative way. The quality of the food is amazing, you can definitely understand it from the taste. Atmosphere is perfect and really suggestive. It's a good choice for different occasions. You can't say you've really eaten in Florence if you... More

Spotted this restaurant one evening, visited it the next. Just a few mins walk away from the main tourist area close to the river. Good selection of dishes covered and well presented. Candlelit table says in the darkened restaurant set the mood. The staff are very friendly and speak good english.

The service was great and the atmosphere casual and friendly. The prosciutto and buratta appetizer was very good and large enough to share. House wine was yummy. Osso buco and fusilli with prawns were great. However, a significant portion of the bistecca for two (70 euros) was well-done, which was not good at all. That was a disappointment.

This is a great restaurant to really experience the True Florence The traditional Florentine Steak is one of the best in town. The pastas are innovative and delicious. The murals on the walls give a unique perspective to the firm favorite of mine in Florence.

Trattoria Gargani is a truly unique restaurant and to me it sums up the magic and playful spirit of Florence. It's like walking into a scene of the Boccaccio's Decameron, when you enter the doors of Garga you are immediately greeted with wonderfully intense colours, scents and sounds. The food is simply delicious, and it is nearly always served with... More

Recommended by our hotel, and it was close to Palazzo Vecchio with a nice walk to the restaurant. We (4) went for dinner and the restaurant has an interesting decor with wall murals. Service was great and the appetizers were very good. But the pasta dishes were bland and quite heavy with oil, and sat heavy on the stomach. No... More

The menu offers an eclectic range of dishes and portions are generous. We had a variety of appetizers which included liver pate, mozzarella and anchovies. We had the steak which came sliced on a wooden plank as well as several pasta dishes. Our favorite pasta was the white bolognese. Very delish! Service was friendly and very good.

This location was recommended by our tour guide, Elena, Florence with flair. We went without reservations and received not only gracious service but an excellent meal. From the antipasto to the dolce everything we tried did not disappoint. The steak florentine was cooked perfect, the pasta dishes were wonderful. This place had older negative reviews but obviously these were misplaced... More

Staying in Santa Maria Novella

Neighbourhood Profile
Santa Maria Novella
Santa Maria Novella train station welcomes the majority of the people arriving in Florence, which might explain the hectic pace. Commuters and tourists come across the constant hustle and bustle of the station before exiting, taking a few steps and stopping amazed in Piazza di Santa Maria Novella. It is impossible not to admire the the square, housing one of the most charming basilicas in Florence. The area has plenty of local spots to taste Tuscan specialties, but don’t stop in the main streets alone; the narrower side streets always ensure satisfaction. The huge Parco Delle Cascine provides a solution to the need for a green area as well as a historic welcome in the form of a bronze statue of King Vittorio Emanuele II riding a horse.
